A few months back I went to an event and there was a speaker there and I thought she was the best. She dressed the part, spoke the part and carried herself with confidence and grace.
After the event I was like omg I need to follow her on all social media accounts.
Then after I followed her I went through her posts and started following people that she was close to…I mean I was stalking…hard
I began to have this uneasy feeling and I believe it was the holy spirit saying stop it Siegel.
He began to minister to me that we aren’t all supposed to run in the same circles…why? Because most likely there is someone in that circle that offers the same thing you do…and you know what? That is okay, that just isn’t your circle to be in at that point.
We are all created for relationships and we all want to belong to something that we feel is productive, meaningful, and something that is in alignment with your purpose. We go wrong, when we try to fit into places that God hasn’t called us to. When we do this, we have to try too hard, and do more than what God would require us to do, if we had waited on his leading.
He will always lead us into the right circles, and he may even have us create the circles that are needed for others to be apart of. The main thing is that we have to wait on him. He will always come through because he is forever faithful.
So again, it’s okay to not belong to that circle. God sees you, he knows your desires, your thoughts, your feelings, he knows what you have to offer. He wants you to use your gifts and talents, but in the manner that he has created you to do so. In the Sphere of influence that is specifically designed for you. You may move from circle to circle from Sphere to sphere, it’s all in Gods timing. You have to be prepared for what God has in store for you. Perhaps now is not the time for you to enter into that circle because you’re still being prepared. The circle may require more of you, and you need the preparation time before you may enter.
Don’t think less of yourself because you aren’t there yet. Be good with where you are. Ask God for direction on where you want to be, and as long as it lines up with his will, honey you are good!
You also have to think about that fact that they probably started way before you, and with that don’t start comparing. With persistence and consistency you too can reach the goals that you have set.
Think about the circles that you are in right now. What is your sphere of influence? How can you be better where you are at right now. What things do you need to let go of? What do you need to do more of? How can you be better where you are? how can you offer more?
Know that when your time to move comes, you’ll know. God will make it clear and you won’t have to try and fit but you will already fit, because God specifically designed YOU to be in that place of influence.
Allow God to Maximize you in the place that you are in.
"But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests,[a] a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light."
1 Peter 2:9-NLT
